About this Event

Education – the passport to the future: Supporting our clinicians from graduation to advanced practice

Connect Health “Change” has developed a series of webinars to make and embed transformation in healthcare. Aimed at system leaders and clinicians across the NHS, the webinars provide practical solutions to the challenging issues we are all grappling with.

View our past webinars, agendas, speakers and recordings here.

Advanced clinical practice (ACP) is a rapidly developing area of practice that has gained much recognition. The recent Advanced Practice Roadmap from Health Education England has laid out a clear structure of governance and education development that will allow first contact and advanced practitioners to develop the high standards of skills required for primary care. But how can we support staff educationally to achieve this?

This webinar will discuss how the roadmap translates into practice; the importance of having supported education programmes and how level 7 education be achieved, through HEIs and via the portfolio route.

This webinar will cover;

  • How to turn policy into practice
  • Effective training models and opportunities to develop clinical practice
  • The importance of Advanced Clinical Practice from graduation to development in any specialty and in any healthcare sector from primary care, secondary care or community care to reach level 7 advanced clinical practice status
  • The four pillars - clinical, research, leadership and education
